    Meet the Ambassador: Rwanda’s François Xavier Ngarambe

    China’s growing engagement with Africa has spurred questions from policymakers, civil society and the private sector as to what this deepening relationship means for Africa’s future development, as well as its links with traditional Western actors. China and Rwanda established diplomatic relations in 1971, and bilateral trade between the two nations reached USD $109 million in 2010, up from $9 million in 2002. Ambassador François Xavier Ngarambe from Rwanda will talk on the current cooperation between China and Africa in general and China Rwanda relations in particular.
